liarity of Branilketh's'Pills
i'lT.Ticrace are subject to u redundancynf vitiated bile,
at this season, and it is as dangerous as it is prey-
Merit, but llrandreth's Pills afford an invaluable and
eMeleut protection. By their occasional use we prevent
the collection of those impurities, which, when in. RUM
dent quantities, manse so much danger to the body's
health. They soon mire liverromplaint,dyspepsia,loss
of appetite, vain in thl heed, heart burn, pain in the
breast bone. sudden faintness and costiveness. In brief,
Brandretb's Pills work their way to the very roots of
the disease, cleansing in their passage, removing every
unhealthy accumulation till the blood is purified, the
whole system renovated, and the functions and duty of
life become a pleasure, where before they had been sad
and weary burdens. Often when nothing has relieved
vomiting of the most serious character, whether •from
sea•sicit IMES or otherwise, where the retching has been
appalling, a single dose of four Britndretifs Pills has at
once cured and the patient has fallen into a sweet sleep.
When the mind cannot colleet itself; when the memory
fails; when it is an effort to fix the attention; when our
sleep is broken and our waking hones harassed with
forebodings of evil,then Brandretlis Pills should be used.
If these warnings remain unheeded, rheumatism, con.
snmption, disease of the heart, bilious affections, jaun
dice, dropsies, piles, appoplexies and costiveness will sud
denly present themselves. These Brandreth's Pills would
have prevented,but nerertheless 'M ESE they will also curs.
Use them at once; do not let prejudice prevent the use
of this simple but potent remedy.
Brandreth's Theory qf Disease
Never extract blood. libmd is the life. Ily abstract

lessening the power to feel. And by thus taking away
nature's tools, you may prevent her from fully repairing
the ravages of inflammation, a convert what might only
have been the sirkness of a few days or weeks into a
chronic affection of months and years.
Brandretles Pills accord with Nature

We respectfully call the attention of persons a

now much used throughout the principal cities of
the United States and their vicinities. This mode
of roofing having all the combined requisites of
cheapness, Durability, and Security against Fire
and Water, and dispensing with high gable Walls;
the roofs require an inclination of not more than
three-quarters (i) of an inch to the foot, and in
many eases saving the entire cost of rafters—the
ceiling joist being used.
The gutters nro made of the same material,
without any extra charges ; consequently, our

en imperishable nature, it sur passes all others in
Durability, ;—besides, in ease of auy casualty, it
is the most easily repaired of any other roof notv

The glow-worm trims her silver lamp,
And feeds its fairy spark,
To guide her love through the damp
And ' dreary forest dark.
And when the dew is on the leaf,
She smiles, unfit. behold,
The tears of Eveu's silent grief
Are turned to heads of gold.
So shines my love, when sorrow's night
Descends in stOan and wrath,
And from her eyes a gentle light
Illuminates all my•path.
And in the wilderenss of gloom,
All darksome, and forlorn,
Her light brings roses into bloom
As sunshine in the morn.
My love! my starry glow-worm, bright,
I bless thy quiet ray,
There is no loveliness, or night,
Whilst thou dost cheer the way.
And through the dui*, that friendly beam,
When sunshine friends depart,
Still on my pathway there shall gleam.
That love-light from thy heart!
Summer moonbeams softly playing,
Light the woods of Castle Keep;
And there I sec a maiden straying,
Where the darkest shadows creep,
She is listeningeekiy, purely,
To the wooer at her side;
'Tis the "old, old story," surely,
Running on like time and tide,
Maiden fair, oh ! have a care;
Vows are many—truth is rare.
lie is courtly, she is simple;
Lordly doublet speaks his lot;
She is wearing hood and wimple--

Than the night bird's dulcet thrill ;

'Tis "the old, old story still.
Maiden fair, oh! hare a care;
vows are many—truth is rare.
The autumn sun is quickly going
Behind the woods of Castle Keep;
The air is chill the night wind blowing,
And there I see a maiden weep.
Her cheeks are white—her brow is aching—
The "old, old story" sad and brief;
Of heart betrayed, and left, nigh breaking,
In mute despair and lonely grief.
Maiden's fair, oh have a care;
Vows are many—truth is rare.
Bis grllammt,s.
lowing incident was narrated to Lieu
tenant Beckwith, of the:Pacific Railroad
Expedition, by a Delaware Indian guide
as they were traversing a o pountain pass
which was marked by:numerous gullies
and ravines :
"He was traversing this pass at mid
night, accompanied by his squaw only,
both mounted on the same horse, and
the night so dark that he could neither
see the outlines of the hills nor the
ground at the horse's feet,when he heard
a sound (which he - imitated) so slight as
to be scarcely perceptible to an Indian's
car, as an arrow carried in the hand,
striking once only with a slight tick,
against a bow. Stopping, he could hear
nothing, but instantly dismounted—his
squaw leaning down upon the horse,
that site might by no possibility be seen
—and placed his ear to the ground, when
he heard the same sound repealed, but
a few feet distant, and was therefore
satisfied that however imminent the dan
ger, he had not yet been seen or heard,
for no Indian wonld make such a noise
at night in approaching his foe; he there
fore instantly arose and took his horse
by the bridle close to his mouth, to les
sen the chances of his moving or
whiing, and one hundred and seventy
of his deadliest enemies, the Sioux, on
a war party,e fled past him within arm's
reach wile lie remained unobserved."
The Holyoke Mirror says that an indi
vidual who appeared in the Fourth of
July procession in that town, dressed as
an Indian was a MorMon Elder, who
has been doing a large business in pros
elyting, and is supposed to have come
from Shelburne Fall. The following
strange and disgusting affair is recorded
as a fact :
"On Tuesday evening he was seen,
with some half a dozen young women,
wending his way down to the river be . -
low the swing ferry. Our informant a
live to the prospect of seeing some fuu,
crawled carefully along, under cover of
the bushes, to within a few feet of the
party. it soon became evident that the
Mormon rite of baptism was there, un
der the mellow light of the moon, to be
administered. After a short prayer, the
Elder and his converts entered upon
the ceremony before them, by laying off
all their garments with the exception of
a certain unmentionable nether one,
and one after another received a dip•
ping at his hands. After coming out
of the water, each removed her wet
garment, and stood forth in all the un
restrained freedom, if not in the bliss
ful innocence of glorious old Eden.—
They soon donned again their customa
ry apparel, satisfied, no doubt, that by
this time they were far above the liabil
ity of committing sin, and that by be
coming subsequently "pickled," as a
Mormon preacher recently said all true
followers must, they would' be happy
Jesse W. Goodrich, formerly editor of

Barnum's baby show presented us with
an occular demonstration of
,the "quin

with five children, all born-on the same

in Ibis direction has been reached. But
as it was not our province to affix boun

to say, of progressive, life,

we concluded, very philosophically, to
believe it possible, barely possible, that
six might occur. Beyond this we re
solved not to believe in a single baby.

Now the best or the worst of it is, the

Our half-a-dozen barrier is broken down
or rather leaped over—our incredulity
is shaken to the winds. We will now
stick our stake at ten. We believe up
to that number; but if ever a daughter
of Eve presumes to tax our faith to the

we are there to see. Meanwhile a ques

Ethan Allen's Sword.—Col. Ethan
Allen's grand-daughter resides at Mill
Point, Ottowa county, Michigan. She
has in her possession the identical sword
with which the Colonel backed up his
demand for the surrender of Ticonder
oga—"in the name of the Great Je
hovah and the Continental Congress."
The sword is an old-fashioned one.
The plate is twenty-seven inches in
length and slighly curved: Length of
handle seven inches, making the entire
length of the thirty-four .inches. The
handle is of bone or horn. The mount.
ing is of silver, but was washed with
gold while worn by Captin Allen to
match his uniform.
.The gold is now
partially worn off. A dog's head of
silver forms the end of the handle, and
from this to the guard runs a silver
chain. On one of the silver bands of
the scabbard the name Ethan Allen is
engraved in large letters; on another E.

abandons the helm in despair, woman
seizes it, and carries the skip home
through the storm? Man often flies
from home and families, to avoid im
pending poverty or ruin ; ; woman seldom,
if ever, forsook home thus. Woman
never evaded mere temporal calamity by
suicide or desertion. The proud bank
er, rather than see his property gazett
ed, may blow out his brains, and leave
his wife and children in want, protee
torless ; loving woman would have coun
selled him to accept poverty, ;Ind live
to cherish his family and retrieve his
fortune. Woman should be counselled
and confided in. It is the beauty and
the glory of her nature, that it instinc
tively grasps at and clings to the truth
and right. Reason, man's greatest fac
ulty, takes time to hesitate before it de
cides, but woman's instinct never hes
itates in its decision, and is scarcely
ever wrong, where it has even chances
with reason. Woman feels where man
thinks, acts where he deliberates, hopes
where he despairs, and triumphs where
he falls.
The Market Overstoched4—Not , less
than fifty German princesses are of an
age to be married; and hence, of course,
looking out in the matrimonial market.
On the other hand, there are not more
than half a dozen continental princes
who are of an age befitting the expect
ants. Among these are the Count of
Flanders and Prince George of Saxony,
both heirs apparent of thrones; Prince
William of Baden, and two or three
others of minor note.
The Danger of Dentristry.—A young
lady in Dayton, Ohio, came very near
losing her life, within the past week, in
consequence of the extraction of a tooth.
The removal of a molar severed an ar
tery, and the profuse bleeding continu
ed, interrupted by but short intervals,
for nearly two days, until she was near
ly exhausted. It was finally checked,
but not until she had lost between one
and two gallons of blood.
Sugor.--There is a probability that
sugars will, in a short time, become
much reduced in prices, for, if we may

a culminating point. ' The vast product

and the sorghum, with .the unsold stock

Lade and Early owing.—The
tor of the West Chester Record, men
tions a circumstance that has fallen un
der his notice in relation to the crops.
in Chester county, which, as it occurs
also in Berlcs, is worthy the attention
of our farmers. He says it happens
frequently that one farmer has an excel
lent yield, while his next neighbor has
scarcely more than half a crop. A
practical farmer, who has investigated
the matter, gives it as his opinion that
where the Mediterranean wheat was
sown early and became well rooted in
the ground before, the frost Set in, the
crop is good ; and where icwas sown
late, it has generally failed.
.He states
that himself and one of his neighbors
put in the
,principal part of their wheat
about the 3d of September. Each has
a heavy crop. They each hid potato
patches which were sown a month later.
In these patches, owing to the late.sow
ing, the crop was a failure—the shallow
roots not being able to resist the cold
of the winter. Land of a Southern ex•
posure, as a general rule, affords the
best prospect of uniform crops. The
last winter was exceedingly cold, and
we understand that much of the wheat
on lands with a Northern exposure, was
'winter killed;' The snow blew off, and
left the grournd'exposed, while the fields
facing the South, and protected by the
snows, yielded the most beautiful crops.
As the time for sowing winter grain
will soon be here; these suggestions are
The Crops Abroad.—The advices by
the Asia inform us that the crops in all
parts of Continental Europe, promise a
rich harvest, and that, as will be seen
by the reports of the different markets,
breadstuffe are declining in all markets.
In some parts of Germany, farmers have
already begun to harvest their rye crops,
and bread made of new rye flour was - in
general use, and pronounced of good
quality. The tobacco plantations in
Southern' Germany have been much re
freshed by late rains,and promise a good
crop. The grape vines in Germany have
ceased blooming, and single berries have
already reached the size of small peas.
If the snmmer should continue as it has
begun, the wine of 1840 will be outdone
by the product of 1857, both in quanti-•
ty and quality.
Getting in Hay on Sunday.—A. case
of Sabbath breaking was tried at SoUth
Windsor kat Saturday, before Justice
John Moore. It appeared .that Mr. D.
Sperry, proprietor of. the hotel in that
place, had some tray out, which had been
wet in the storms previous to Sunday
of last week. Sunday morning being
clear, though there were indications of
another storm, which would have ruined
the hay, it was properly put into the
barn and saved. For doing this, Mr.
Sperry and his seven a ssistants were
prosecuted by Mr. Grand Juror Clapp.
Wm. W. Eaton, Esq., appeared for the
defendants, and H. K. W. Welch, Esq.,
for the prosedutiOn. The Justice dis•
missed the case, - as an unsound one—
Mr. Sperry being justified by the evi
dence,—Hartford Times.
Cuau POTATOES.—The Cincinnati
Enquirer says a wagon load of potatoes
was offered to a firm in Commercial
Row, in that city, on Friday, at the low
price of 25 cents a bushel by a gentle
man from Covington, Kentucky. The.
same gentleman offered -to contract for
five hundred or a thousand bushels at
digging time, at the same price. Pota
toes, however, are still kept up at star
vation price in Cleveland,new ones sell
ing at $2, and old ones selling at $1,50,
and the crop so promising that prices
must soon decline. The Cleveland
Ileraid says that it heard on Saturday
of an offer to contract to deliver one
thousand bushels at twenty cents at dig
ging time.
Wa.vr FOLLY.—Madam Lagrange, a
newly imported opera singer at N. Y.,
on the occasion of her benefit a few eve
nings since, had a crown of solid gold
presented her by a committee or admir
ing Republicans. Col. Fuller, editor of
the Know Nothing Mirror, made a very
silly spcach on the occasion. The fol
lowing, which we clip from the New
York letter of a cotempurary, will serve
to show still further the extravagance
of the mushroom aristocracy of our large
cities :

Stumping Correspondence.

WILLIAMSPORT, .July 18, 1857.
MN. C. R. Bucit AL NW ,
Chairman of State Committee *:
Dear Sir :--11 have received the cm
closed letter from' rune e'f the opposing
candidates for the Gubernatorial office,
and inasmuch as it proposes a plan for
the conduct of the canirfaign Which has
never before been practised in Penn-
sylvania, and as the success of other
candidates, besides myself, is involved
in the election, I have thought it my
duty to submit the communication to
the judgment of the State Committee
representing the Democratic party, If
it is thought to be a proper mo de of
conducting the canvass, I shall cheer
fully accede to the proposition.
Respectfully yours,
Reply of the Chaii'man of eke Centrat
PHILADELPHIA, July 25, 1857
Dear Sir have laid before the
State Committee the lettet signed D.
Wilmot, dated the 14th instant, and am
authorized to say to you that in the o
pinion of the Committee you ought not
to accede to the proposition it contains:
The reasons for this opinion I will pro
ceed to state
The slavery question, which it is pos.
sible your opponent proposes to discuss,
has very recently been thoroughly con.
sidered and passed upon by the people
of this Commonwealth. The late Pres
idential canvass involved the whole sub
ject so far as it was proper for consider
ation by our people, and we superceive'
no utility in its re-discussion at this
time; nor any other good reason for re
opening debate upon it. The position
of our party is well understood and re•
quires no vindication, at least by any
extraordinary proceeding like that pro.
A joint canvass by candidates for the
Gubernatorial office has never been con
ducted in this State, nor, I believe, in
any other Northern one, and may well
be questioned on grounds of public pol
icy. If the practice be once adopted,
it will doubtless continue, and party
nominations be uninformly made with
reference to it. No party will venture
to 'select a candidate for this office who
is not qualified for the stump; and ap•
titude for debate will hence become to
be preferred to administrative ability.
In short, the result will be to confine
nominations to the class of talkers, and
to exclude all others. A rule of party
action which would prevent such men
as Benj. Franklin, Simon Snyder and
Francis 8.. Shook from filling the Ex
ecutive chair of this State must be a
bad one, and to be denounced rathr that!
We believe there is a considerable
public opinion against the propriety of
executive candidates appearing at all
before popular meetings to solicit votes.
This was first practiced by Vim. F.
Johnston in 1848, and has been to some
extent followed by candidates since.—
The good results of it are not obvious.
It did not originate with the Democrat.
ic party, nor has it ever received any
formal popular or party sanction.—
It may therefore be considered an operr
question in future practice, and at all
events as forming no part the duty of a
candidate imposed upon him by ltis
While your opponent holds theloffice
of President Judge, there is a special
objection to the acceptance of his pro
ject. The propriety of law judges tak
ing part in political meetings is denied
by our party, and is opposed by sound
public opinion. By no act whatever
ought we to sanction or become partici
, pants in a prostitution of the judicial
character: Nor will a resignation now
made altogether remove this objection.
Your opponent has intentionally held
_his office until within three months of
the electiOn, (rendering it impossible to
elect a successor the present year,) and
if a resignation should now take place,
it would obviously be with the intention
of resuming the office after the defeat
for the post to which he aspires.
The proposed mode of conducting
campaigns may possibly be suited to
some of the Southern and South-western
States, where it has been practiced, and
whose population and political condi
tions differ from ours; but its introduc
tion here would be against solid objec
tions, and without any conceivable good.
It is therefore proposed "Southern ag
gression" upon the practice and policy
of parties in Pennsylvania, which can
not he at all accepted or permitted.
It is well that this question has arisen
when we have a candidate capable and
I ft for any discussion before the people,
and when the decision can be placed,
without embarrassment, upon public
grounds which control it.
I am very respectfully,
your obedient servant,
C. R. BUCKALEW, Chairman.
